Even after doing everything possible to avoid what is hitting thousands of people during this terrible cold and flu season, it got me! I have to say that it took me by surprise because I was convinced that there was no way it would break through the immune system that I have worked so hard in building up since my cancer treatment.
After getting over feeling sorry for myself, I decided to attack the situation head on and take every precaution to avoid the flu from getting any worse. I was told by my medical practitioner that the flu would last between 8 and 14 days and has been leading many into a secondary condition, such as sinus infections and bronchitis. That didn’t sound very encouraging.
When this first started, I did not have much of an appetite, but decided to use my NutriBullet to stay well hydrated and take in as many nutrients as possible to help me maintain my strength and fight the virus. I made two NutriBlasts a day and included ingredients like kale, cucumber, celery, cilantro, turmeric, cinnamon, organic honey and lemon. I also used oranges, mango and strawberries because of the numerous vitamins they contain and I never added dairy to any Blast.
Within 5 days, I began to feel much better, which is amazing considering I was told this could last up to 2 weeks and a minimum of 8 days.
There are things we can do to make it through the cold and flu season unscathed. In addition to the obvious, washing our hands often and eating well certainly help. If it does happen to get you, don’t give up on eating well. I do attribute my quicker recovery to what I was putting into my body during the illness. I am not surprised that my NutriBullet proved to be a valuable asset during my unfortunate experience with the flu. It didn’t just help me to consume nutritious foods; it was great for increasing my fluid intake which is a crucial part of the recovery from the illness.
